I have always loved the body shop products, but I have never had enough time to go in and try the products that I have apparently been missing out on!
This lovely assistant helped me with everything she was s kind, friendly and welcoming.
She was so in depth and explained everything to me, what I need to do and what is best for my skin.
I have had many bad experiences with makeup counter assistances, they have made me feel uncomfortable and ashamed of how I look under my mask of makeup. Not concentrating and coming out feeling terrible and even looking terrible.
I have a real issue with the beauty marks on my face, and for a person on a makeup counter telling them, that is a problem for me. There response I could never forget “Yes you do have a lot of them, so it will take some time to cover them up.” I was mortified after I had my treatment done I was so hurt and upset I cried, how can someone be so inconsiderate.
But enough of hat body shop was such an amazingly special experience, I told the girl my flaws, and she understood and helped me in the best way possible.
The displays were set out perfectly with each scent complementing each other.
So here is what I walked away with (there are loads sorry if you start to get bored) make a cuppa and read on:
ＶＩＴＡＭＩＮ “Ｅ” ＣＲＥＡＭ
So, first of all, Is the Vitamin E Cream, which I prefer to use as a primer.
I suffer from severe boils under my skin and red sore spots. I know that makeup doesn’t help the skin especially the amount I tend to wear to hide my blemishes I usually call it my (mask) which I hide behind.
This cream has tiny pockets of cream which pop throughout the day keeping your skin hydrated. I use this as a base before I apply my foundation. I would recommend this to all women who wear heavy makeup.

- With vitamin E
- Improved formula, with biofermented hyaluronic acid from Pomacle, France
- With Community Trade shea butter from Ghana
- With Community Trade aloe vera from Mexico

ＡＬＯＥ ＧＥＮＴＡＬ ＦＡＣＩＡＬ ＷＡＳＨ
The second product I discovered is this Aloe Exfoliating Wash Recommended by the lovely lady above; my skin can be very sensitive with face washes. It’s taken me forever to find such a fantastic product. (if you are not happy with any of the products you are welcome to return the product and try another if it doesn’t agree with your skin. Easy hand pump I normally press twice which is always enough for me. It’s smooth, refreshing and calmly soothes the skin, make you feel clean and radiant. Extremely reasonable price:
- Formulated for sensitive skin
- Pure Community Trade aloe from Campeche, Mexico
- No added fragrance, colour or alcohol
- Formulated without preservatives
- Soothe and calm sensitive skin
ＡＬＬ ＩＮ ＯＮＥ ＢＢ ＣＲＥＡＭ
This tinted moisturiser is the lightest foundation ever; it does everything I want a foundation to do. It has the most incredible cover up for blemishes and scars.
It first comes out white then once rubbed in it changes colour adapting to the colour of your skin tone. This is perfect to use in the summer.
The only thing I would say about this product the tube just isn’t big enough but is any foundation container ever big enough!
Price wise reasonable:
- BB Cream
- Adapts to skin tone
- Hydrates for 24hrs
- Illuminates and evens appearance of skin tone
- Light to medium coverage
- 5 shades
- Community Trade organic aloe vera
PS. my tendonitis is playing up on my wrist and bruises, that’s why my hand looks black. sad times.
ＡＬＬ ＩＮ ＯＮＥ ＦＡＣＥ ＢＡＳＥ
The fantastic Face Base does exactly what the title says. Using my tinted moisturising foundation pop this over the top and the look is set. In my opinion, I can’t stand foundation being oily
so I pop this over the top, and it’s a completely different look. Using the soft brushes below helps apply the cosmetics in the best way possible. The face base does come with a sponge, but from experience, I wouldn’t advise it.

I have always had problem rehydrating my skin, using the daily vitamin E face cream. I use this on my face overnight to get it a little extra boost while I m catching up on my beauty sleep.
My acne has vanished, and my skin feels so fresh and smooth. One thing I would advise is to be careful of the pipet as it can go everywhere but other than that it’s perfection.

ＰＩＮＫ ＧＲＡＰＥ ＦＲＵＩＥＴ
ＨＡＮＤ ＣＲＥＡＭ ＢＯＤＹ ＣＲＥＡＭ ＢＯＤＹ ＳＰＲＡＹ
Well, I put all the products above in the same section, which you may just know the reason why?
The nicest smelling creams and spray I haven’t found a body spray and Body cream that has a strong, unique sweet scent that will stay on my body throughout the day, and these products do exatcly that I want.
One negative out of all the above is the hand cream, in my opinion, the hand cream is too greasy and oily for my liking, but as I say I use it just for the smell and not forgetting the smoothness of the creams and thickness which is just perfect.
